Return of Excess Tax Sale Proceeds

From time to time, municipalities conduct tax sales of properties subject to seriously delinquent real estate taxes or other obligations. Property owners have 6 months after these sales to redeem these properties by paying the amounts owing in full. If they fail to do so, and the sale generated proceeds in excess of the tax or other obligations owing, which is often the case, the municipality deposits these excess funds with the Superior Court. Potential claimants to said funds, such as mortgages on the property, the former property owner(s), or the owner’s heirs, must then make application to that Court within 90 days of the deposit to prosecute their claim and potentially receive a portion of these proceeds. Scott handles Applications to Obtain Excess Proceeds in all Connecticut jurisdictions. If you believe you have such a claim, please contact him to discuss your case.
